After a nine-month hiatus, Opera Australia have returned to Sydney with a spectacular summer line-up including The Merry Widow, Ernani and Valentine’s Day’s sunset piazza.

“For all the artists performing again, it’s a wonderful thing.

“At the moment, we’re the only major opera company in the world that’s playing to a live audience.

“That’s a special thing for us.”
